Kanye Says Beyoncé is “Greater Than Tina Turner”

Rapper Kanye West recently went off about how great Beyoncé Knowles is. According to him, she might even be greater than Tina Turner.

He says, “Nobody really wants to recognize that Beyoncé is a f***ing living legend and that she is just as great, if not greater, than the artists that we had in the past…that she’s probably greater than Tina Turner.”

That’s quite a big thing to say. I’m not so sure I’d go that far

I like Kanye, but this mofo done bumped his motherfuckin head mad

I'm sure he said it all in caps.

Let's hope this talentless douchebag is served a lesson sometime soon. Otherwise next we'll be hearing about how he parted the waters and turned them red.

people have been saying shit like this since forever. the beatles said
they were bigger than god (they probably were) and oasis said they are
bigger than the beatles (they're probably not).

why do people act like kanye is the only one to ever go off on such an
ego trip?

Kanye was probably drunk or high when he said that. Beyonce is a completely different sort of artist than what Tina Turner is. Tina reigns.

lol, i know. but it's just an extension of him saying how great he is himself.
perhaps he thought "if i say someone else is bigger than a legend people will
cut me some slack".

Kanye has just proven himself to be an ignorant fool.
Studies have shown the ass crack of the average Prince fan to be abnormally large. This explains the ease and frequency of their panties bunching up in it.

True, but I was on the fence cause he's had some good tracks. I no longer feel bad at all thinking his new album was pretty weak. Tina Turner shits bigger than Kanye. Beyonce is just shit.

His only reasoning . . .

I'm greater than Prince and Michael Jackson combined;

so that must mean . . .

Beyonce is greater than Tina Turner;

because . . .

every artist hittin' this decade is greater than anyone who preceded them!

it all makes sense!

He must be talking alot of shit to keep his name out there, which is the new way to keep up your profile, talk shit, start shit, but no one ever keeps up their profile with kick ass records in this mainstream we have been blessed with. Here are the classics lines that have come this last year or two.



"me and jt are like Michael and Prince in the 80's"
"im the black madonna"
"im the first one to ever do a video for every song on an album"


For everyone that bad mouths the past everyone seems to reach back and grab it and use it as a platform for their shit. The above quotes are gems from Kanye,Beyonce and Rihanna. We all know Kanye is just an immature dick, and we tolerate it, because its now expected. Kind of like when Little Richard would go on every award show and say the winner is "me", the difference, Little Richard had a lifetime of being screwed by everyone, kanye has not. As for this TINA comment, i really take offense to this comment, because of WHO Tina Turner was and is, what she represented as a woman, the times she went through. I mean she played clubs back in the day that wouldnt even let her eat a meal in the club because she was black, Beyonce has not even seen anything like that. She is alive because of someone like TINA. TINA did not have any of the benefits that Beyonce has had, a media that is up her ass 24/7, every magazine cover, every poster in a store, every 5 seconds on a video channel, Tina had none of that.I would have more respect or less offense to this comment had Beyonce struggled or even Kanye the way any of the past artists struggled, got screwed, just so they could have the benefits they do.

That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard from pop star about the music scene.

I'll give you that newer generations hardly get the credibility they deserve and everyone puts icons like Tina, Aretha, etc. on their shoulders and dismisses everyone else, but that is an absurd statement.

With every new album, the cracks in Beyoncé facade become more clear and she is much more of a style icon and great singer than a real artist. Yes, she writes her songs and for the most part Tina doesn't but with songs like those? I'll put "Nutbush City Limits" up against the crap on any of the five editions of "Sasha Fierce". I think Kayne is just being goofy and trying to get attention....or he seriously suffered brain damage in that accident!

Unfortunately, when the media puts a microphone in front of that fool, they are simply providing him with a platform that he then uses to irritate the rest of the world.

If no one paid him any mind, didnt patronise his events, his photo-ops, his appearances at events, etc.....then he would have to pay for his own press releases, at which point, the media could simply ignore him and not report anything he says.

We should all be able to hope.....

Well hell, it ain't like he knows what he's talking about anyway. Hell, he's a shit hopper. He thinks his songs are actually music.
